Following the reveal of the next-gen Astra in September, Vauxhall has revealed the first glimpse of the Sports Tourer model. The sporty estate will be available as plug-in hybrid for the first time which is a first for the manufacturer.

The plug-in hybrid technology produces a combined 225PS, with power ranging from 110PS to 130PS across the petrol and diesel variants. A six-speed gearbox is standard on the petrol and diesel power units, while plug-in hybrid variants come standard with an eight-speed automatic.

Following the theme of the hatchback, the Sports Tourer continues the brand’s new bold and pure design philosophy. That includes the Vauxhall Vizor front end which features a single, clean panel that houses the new Griffin logo and various driver and safety aids. It also houses the LED head lights and front camera.

The design theme continues to the interior, with customers offered best-in-class ultra-ergonomic seats as well an intuitive experience thanks to a 10-inch driver instrument cluster and a 10-inch digital touchscreen featuring Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Measuring 4,642mm long, 1,860mm wide and 1,480mm tall, and with a loading height of 600mm, practicality remains the main selling point of the estate. The boot provides up to 608 litres of useful storage space with the rear seats up which expands to 1,634 litres. In addition, when the 40:20:40-split rear seats are folded, the floor is completely flat – making it easier to load. This is slightly reduced in the PHEV variant, with cargo volumes of 548 litres and 1,574 litres respectively.

Petrol and diesel variants are available with Vauxhall’s optional Intelli-Space feature, which adds a movable load floor that can be tilted to high and low positions and tilted to a 45-degree angle.

The Astra Sports Tourer will be available to order next year, with deliveries expected in summer.
